Green is Always A Good Idea
Friday, February 16, 2018 11 Comments Images

Happy Friyay ya'll!! The weekend is here and for met, this is one of those weeks that flew by! Time is so weird like that...how one week, time seems to be going in slow motion and then the next week, everything is a blur because the week went by so fast. Anyone else ever feel like that? I have come to the conclusion that time is one of those concepts in life that I won't ever fully understand or comprehend.
Any who, on to today's look, and to start I have a question for you? Do you have a go-to color that is not black or white? Let me elaborate, so I love to wear black and white (black in particular), but outside of those colors, there is another color that I often gravitate to, and I'm curious if any of you do the same. If you do, leave a comment below and tell me which color it is.

As for me, the color I tend to gravitate to a lot is green. In particular, a forest or army green. I don't know why really but I do. It seems to match well with most of my wardrobe and there is a classic feel to it for some reason. For my green fix in today's look, I went with one of my favorite jackets from the shop. I love that this jacket can pair well with a casual look or could be dressed up with a more formal look. It's not a basic but it feels like one because it matches and complements so well with other pieces. The details are in the flaps and buttons and it works for both a fall or spring jacket, or in if you experience a mild winter like we are here, it works great for that too! Check it out here, and I hope each of you have a wonderful weekend! Spend time with those you love, chase your dreams, be kind, and stay safe! I love you all!!

It's Love Day ya'll!

"You know I want you
 It's not a secret I try to hide
 I know you want me...."

- Rewrite the Stars, The Greatest Showman.

It's Valentine's guys. Love day. The day we celebrate love and being in love and falling in love and everything else that comes with it. I love Valentine's Day...and not because it's an event, or a reason to go out, or buy gifts, or give flowers, or any of that. I love Valentine's Day because it is a day that celebrates love. Man oh man, I wish we celebrated love every single day, because to me, and my family, that is what life is all about. My hope and focus is to take principle behind Valentine's Day, a celebration of love, and do my best to apply that to every day that I am alive! It's crazy to think that I have been married to Brod almost 9 years and have known him for 10, time goes by so fast! The best thing about that though...I can honestly say I am more in love with him now than I have ever been. He really is the best and there is nothing better than being in love with your best friend!!

Wow, ok super mushy stuff today, I guess I am getting all sorts of wrapped up in this Valentine's Day spirit haha! But seriously, focusing on the love we have in our life can make all the difference and finding ways to strengthen and renew the love each of us have in our lives is something we should be striving to do each day. Part of love is showing it to others, I have often heard the quote by Shakespeare, "they do not love that do not show their love." Whether it be through acts of service, gifts, handwritten notes, hugs, kisses, date night, new outfits, or whatever you decide the best way to show your love to your significant other might be....please make sure to SHOW it!! Don't assume they know you love them, show them, tell them, and do it again and again! If you do decide that grabbing a gift or an outfit is part of your Valentine's plan this year, make sure and check out Express, they have tons of awesome new options for both men and women in their "what's hot" and "new arrivals"sections! Both Brod's and my look in today's post are from Express and are linked below. I have even snagged you guys a code for a discount! Check it out below:

 $25 off purchase of $100+ in-store only, using the ring code: 3185 (T&C info regarding promo found here)

 I hope each and everyone one of you celebrates love and has an amazing Valentine's Day!!

"And your little yellow dress
Made me go ballistic 
I begged you not to change it 
And you never did 
I'm so glad."

-Johnny Flynn

So, I hijacked Rara's (Cara's) computer and the thoughts above are what I think of this yellow number. I love it. It looks great on her, and you can find it at the shop. Many thanks to all of you for all of your love and support of my wife. Peace and love on this wonderful Wednesday.

Love is in the scent
Wednesday, February 07, 2018 11 Comments Images

Hello loves. It is the season of love, and if any you men out there need to know or want to know how to spoil the lady in your life, then today's post is just for you!
What woman doesn't love a new fragrance?! Better yet, one that comes in maybe the most pretty bottle you've ever seen. Well men or women who want to spoil themselves...listen up! Ulta now carries the Viva la Juicy SoirĂ©e Eau de Parfum by Juicy Couture, and let me tell you as a woman that loves her perfume, this one is absolutely fantastic. I love that Juicy Couture is a brand that is made for the woman that is not afraid to have fun and work hard and play hard! I love that they celebrate that!  One of the big areas of focus I have for my life is striving to find the balance with each of the different hats I wear and making sure I evaluate where I am spending my time and why.
Their new fragrance features scents of wild berries, honeysuckle, and juicy mandarin. It is a lively and lovely perfume and one that is perfect for a night out as well as for everyday wear. Not to mention the design of the bottle itself makes for a great addition to your vanity. The bottle is their classic but with a twist, bringing in the paint splatter. I love the way it it looks on my tray on my vanity! It's the perfect gift for this Valentine's day and one that can keep giving and giving over and again. That is the beauty of a great fragrance...it can be worn consistently and still provide the same value time after time, wear after wear.

As mentioned above, you can find the Viva La Juicy Perfume at Ulta, along with many other fragrances by Juicy Couture. I hope each of you is taking the time to celebrate love, not only during this time of year, but everyday!
